endocavitary soak station(1)

I need some advice on endocavitary probe (vaginal probe) soak station.  We currently have a probe but no way to clean it except central supply.  I remember hearing about a non-toxic hydrogen peroxide cleaning station at ACEP meeting last year.  Does anyone have any info and/or experience about this?  I'd also welcome information regarding other systems in use.  We are a medium-sized community ED with a small number of providers using the machine hoping to grow. I have been offered an old ultrasound department soak station but it requires manual operation i.e. a tech moving it between soaks for specified time periods and may need ventilation.  Alternatively our central supply could help us out with a turn-around time of about 1hr but I am not sure about the long-term feasibility of this option.

As always, thanks for all your input.
